"Dynamic Duo" Home safe and sound

The gang left the abandoned building and walked home in the rain. Robert was thankful everyone was safe but Molly wished they'd went into the garage. Milly's allergies were acting up and Sally smelled like the dumpster.

Walking home in the rain

They were all tired by the time they got back to their street. They went by the house on the corner. They didn't see any action going on there. When they reached Sally's house they waited till she went in the house. She smelled so bad from the dumpster that they were glad to wave goodbye to her. Then they continued down the street to Robert's house and watched till he went in the house. Molly and Milly crossed the street and walked up the steps to home. It really felt good to be home. They both needed a bath, and they seriously needed some sleep.

Molly tells Dad everything

When they entered the house, the first thing they saw was Dad sitting in his favorite chair. It was definitely not time for him to be up, so that meant he knew they'd been up to something. Milly stood behind Molly and let her do all the talking. Dad didn't look happy. Molly told Dad everything that had happened. The longer Molly talked the angrier Dad got. Milly could feel a lecture coming, and she was too tired to listen to it. If Dad had been through what they'd been through, he would have gone straight to bed. Dad carried on something terrible about danger. He was really upset that they didn't included him in their plans. By the time he was done Milly's eyes could barely stay open. One eye was completely shut, it was probably her allergies. Finally he said they could go to bed. Molly walked out of the room with her head down and Milly followed right behind her. Thank goodness that was over. Milly hated lectures almost more than old abandoned buildings. Well, not quite as much, but almost as much.

A peaceful day of rest

Milly was too tired to give much thought to what Dad said. She got cleaned up and crawled into mom and dad's bed, her favorite spot was sleeping next to the wall. By the time she put her head down she was out like a light. She never moved again until afternoon. Molly went to her dog bed, stretched out and fluffed her pillow, she fell asleep and slept the day away. Molly dreamed that there were ghosts in the abandoned building and they were chasing her down the hall. By the time she woke up she was drenched in sweat. Molly didn't know if she could keep up this pace with the undercover operations. There was a possibility that it would be a good thing if Dad took charge. Molly would definitely turn the reins over to Dad. At least they had found out for sure that there really was a chop shop in their neighbor. Dad should be happy about that.

A stormy day

When Milly got up, she went and sat on the window sill. She was trying to stay out of Dad's way. The last thing she needed was another lecture. Molly was still sleeping and Milly felt like a truck had driven over her. These long nights were hard on her. She was not cut out for walking in the rain, much less walking for miles. They didn't accomplish much last night and besides that, they were in trouble with Dad. That was never good. Mom had given her some allergy medicine and the swelling in her one eye was starting to go down. Mom said that she might need allergy shots. Milly didn't like the sound of that one bit. It was still raining so Milly had no plans to go outside today, tonight or ever, the way she felt.

Molly plans a visit

Molly felt much better when she got up. The aggravations of the night were gone and she was ready to start the day. It was the middle of the afternoon but, that was okay. The nightmare had scared her, but she was able to shake it off and come up with a new plan. Dad was definitely not happy with her but, he was in his office with the door shut. That was a good thing because Molly didn't have to deal with him. She was going to go and see the raccoon. At least she knew where he had set up his new home and it wasn't far from the house. She could go alone because it wouldn't be a dangerous mission. The raccoon could actually be part of her back up plan if he would cooperate.

I am glad they all got home safely even it it did end in a lecture for our brave duo Nancy .
Maybe it would be wiser if they included dad in their missions from now on ...but , you're the story teller , so I will leave that up to you .
Many blessings to you

Stella, thank you so much for the awesome comment as always. I was glad they all got home safe too. I think telling Dad before they do anything would be a wise move on their part. Molly has a tendency to get in over her head when she goes out on these stake outs.

Home and rest -- this is something that very few writers care about but they make the home touch complete.
Nice going Nancy.

Glad that Molly and Milly have gotten over the tiredness and Dad's lecture.

Dad wants others to include and tell him about their plans, but he hardly sets an example! I think of a friend of mine making fun of others, but cannot take a joke in good spirit if it he is the target!

Molly is a real professional leaving no stones upturned in her single minded pursuit to nail the baddies. I have now to read how the raccoon guy cooperates and why he turned reclusive, thanks Nancy - siva

Siva, thank you so much for the awesome comment. I loved when you said Molly is a professional because she really does try to catch the bad guys. I always feel sorry for Milly when she gets in over her head. She's such a gentle soul and with her allergies she has a hard time.

Thanks Jessica for the awesome comment. We've got a momma raccoon and two babies that are living here on the property. I never go near them but they are here. One day I saw them climbing out of the tree.

Carol, thank you so much for the great comment. I think Milly is a force to be reckoned with when she finally makes up her mind to get involved.
